特別講演「アブラハム一神教の比較研究:ヒューリスティックな利得と認知的陥穽」

講師:ギイ・ストロムザ(エルサレム・ヘブライ大学名誉教授/オクスフォード大学名誉教授)

ユダヤ教・キリスト教・イスラーム教などは「アブラハムの宗教」としての連続性や類縁性を持っています(これを日本では一般に「セム的一神教」と総称していますが、この呼称・概念には近年に西欧では疑義も出ており、「アブラハムの宗教」はこれを置き換える概念とも言えます)。それらの宗教やコミュニティの間の相互関係は、近代のアラブ・イスラエル紛争の文脈では、同族間の敵対関係の神話的根源や象徴として扱われことがありましたが、近年は、宗教間対話の文脈や、イスラエルとアラブ諸国との国交正常化の文脈で、親和性の根拠として言及されることも多くなりました。このように大きな政治性を秘めた「アブラハムの宗教」という概念は、どのように形成され、研究されてきたか。一神教思想研究の第一人者であるギイ・ストロムザ教授に特別講演をお願いします。

Israel Week Online Special Lecture
"The Comparative Study of the Abrahamic Religions: Heuristic Gains and Cognitive Pitfalls”
By Professor Guy G. Stroumsa

RCAST is pleased to announce the distinguished lecture on Abrahamic Religions by Professor Guy G. Stroumsa, Martin Buber Professor Emeritus of Comparative Religion at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and Professor Emeritus of the Study of the Abrahamic Religions at the University of Oxford.  His research interests include early Christianity and dualist trends (Gnosticism, Manichaeism) in Late Antiquity, religious transformations, anthropology in ancient religions and the birth of the modern study of religion.

"Abrahamic Religions" is at once a very ancient topic and a new concept. As the recent agreement between Israel and some Arab countries dubbed as "Abraham Accords" reminded us, the roots and interrelated developments of monotheistic religions have ample political implications. As the recent changes in usages of “Christian Tradition” or “Judeo-Christian Tradition” showed us, the notion of Abrahamic Religions has been a contested and evolving one in the modern and contemporary contexts.
 
On this topic, we delve into its most original and formative phases and invite the authoritative speaker, Professor Stroumsa, who is the co-editor of the "Oxford Studies in the Abrahamic Religions" series and the author of "The Making of the Abrahamic Religions in Late Antiquity", the first of the series. His "The Idea of Semitic Monotheism: The Rise and Fall of a Scholarly Myth" will appear this spring at Oxford University Press.
 
His lecture revolves around the major topics and difficulties on the way of the development of the studies of the monotheistic religions. Use and abuses of this notion in the Modern and contemporary context will also be part of the discussion.
  
Moderator: Satoshi Ikeuchi, Professor of Religion and Global Security and Head of the ROLES (RCAST Open Laboratory for Emergence Strategies). Professor Ikeuchi has published extensively on Middle East politics, Islamic Political issues, and global security challenges.
